Beneficiary Counting Tool
Each project has to assess and report the number of direct and indirect beneficiaries that are reached. The goal is to maximize the beneficiaries of the program- but not at any price. Thus, this tool has been developed to serve two goals: First, to count beneficiaries in a uniform way, and second, to support the projects in maximizing that number (both before, during and post project).
Business case gives insight in the financial feasibility of a project. All project costs and revenues are systematically ordered and analyzed to assess whether the development of the project is feasible. All business cases need to be financially, socially and environmentally sustainable.
The Business Concept is the “idea” of how a project expects to create value.The costs are not central, but rather the value to be created.
